Citizen participation in health seminar series
27th October – 25th January
Kings College London
The ‘Citizen participation in health: critical perspectives’ special seminar series is co-hosted by the King’s College London Division of Health and Social Care Research and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
The seminar series brings together social science expertise to reflect critically on policy and practice of citizen participation in health systems. It draws on critical conceptual framings of participation and in-depth empirical work from the UK and elsewhere. The series aims to focus particularly on the political economy of patient participation in the NHS, the construction of neoliberal patient-professional roles, the emergence of new spaces of citizen engagement in response to the marketization of health, and the relevance of global social movements and health activism to contemporary health systems.
